Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Every time I take the kids berry picking, I think to myself, “I could totally do this. I could farm… It’s hard work, but peaceful and gratifying.”

Then I imagine us buying a large piece of land and reinventing our life. I envision myself in overalls and work boots, driving a tractor. That thought always makes me chuckle! Of course, I know nothing of farming. I’ve never even had my own garden!

This year is the first year we are going to give it a whirl–that is, be involved in a communal garden. I’m hoping to learn a thing or two. I’ll let you know how it goes!

I still like to pretend, as we’re picking berries, that I somehow had a part in cultivating them. I also like to believe that I’m honoring the berries by putting them in such lovely treats! (If that makes me slightly crazy, I can live with that.)

This super moist cake is the perfect way to CELEBRATE juicy berries! It’s thick, soft, and packed full of fresh strawberries that weep pink tears down each tender slice. The yogurt and lemon create a wonderful tangy balance to it’s sweetness. This cake slices well, and doesn’t dry out quickly. It is wonderfully delicious on it’s own–but is also marvelous with a scoop of homemade ice cream! A perfect dessert to take to picnics and BBQs this spring and summer!

Strawberry Yogurt Cake

To prepare Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake:

Preheat oven to 325*. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Sift together the 2 ¼ cups of flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in the lemon zest and set aside.

With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 Tb. lemon juice. Alternate beating in the flour mixture and the yogurt, mixing just until incorporated.

Toss the strawberries with the remaining ¼ cup of flour. Gently mix them into the batter.

Pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Allow to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled whisk together the remaining 2 Tb. of lemon juice and the powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the cake.

Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 Tb. lemon juice, divided
Zest of 1 lemon
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, divided
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
8 oz. plain or vanilla, Greek yogurt
12 oz. fresh strawberries, diced
1 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan (10-15 cup pan.) Sift together the 2 ¼ cups of flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in the lemon zest and set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in 1 Tb. lemon juice. Alternate beating in the flour mixture and the yogurt, mixing just until incorporated.
  3. Toss the strawberries with the remaining ¼ cup of flour. Gently mix them into the batter.
  4. Pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Place in the oven and reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  5. Allow to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Once cooled whisk together the remaining 2 Tb. of lemon juice and the powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the cake.

NOTE: I've had a few questions on the texture of the batter. The consistency of the yogurt and the juiciness of the berries, greatly determined the consistency of the batter. Thick, (dryer) yogurt will produce a thicker batter, in which the berries won't sink to the bottom (top) of the cake as seen in the photos. Either way, it is a great cake--don't worry about the thickness of the batter.

    I made this for a Dessert, for friends that were coming for Dinner, and it turned out just what the photo looked like. It was a hit, and I am going to make it again this next weekend for other friends.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Tasty – kids loved it! Took way longer than 60 minutes (maybe 75-80?) and stuck to the bottom of the bundt even though it was greased. Should I have kept at at 375 longer? I preheated it until it reached that temp – then changed it to 325 as directed) right as I put it in.

    Only changes: I used a 1/4 cup less of sugar and 10 (versus the 12) oz of fresh strawberries.

    Also glaze didn’t dry all professional looking like yours!

    Any suggestions?? Still delicious!

      Hi Melissa, you can make it in two loaf pans and bake around the same length of time. Good luck

    I didn’t read the part about turning down the oven until the cake was in for approx 40 minutes. What effect will this have on the end product? I will probably know by the time you can reply, but i put a lot of love into making this and am hoping it can be salvaged. I turned the oven down to 315 just to hopefully help the situation out.

    Delicious! I used orange zest and freshly squeezed orange juice instead of lemon, blueberry yogurt instead of plain Greek yogurt, and baked in mini loaf pans for 40mins. I’ll be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!

    We had friends over for dinner yesterday and I made this for dessert. I used plain Greek yogurt and reduced the sugar by 1/3cup and it turned out amazing! I saw that some people had trouble with it sticking so I greased and floured the heck out of my pan and had no issue. Will definitely be making again, and experimenting with different fruits. Thank you for sharing!

    Delicious! Baked up perfectly and the whole family loved it. My son always wants strawberry cake for his birthday and I have yet to find one that I really like. This one has potential to be tried as birthday cake later this year!
